A north-east charity is encouraging members of the public to remember children suffering hardship this Christmas.
Children’s charity Aberlour has launched its festive appeal which aims to help those with parents suffering from poor mental health.
It comes as the organisation revealed 11,000 mums each year will develop some form of mental illness during pregnancy or in the first year after their baby is born.
